Hey there! My name is Rebekah, I'm 20 and in my final year of studying to become a "suit" in Auckland, New Zealand.

I don’t get it. Web apps that make art galleries or billboards of your photos and friends’ photos and such have been around for ages. The only feature of this that hasn’t been the focus of a web app that I’ve hidden from my feed in the past, is the showcasing of your likes. I’ll admit this one is a bit classier than those other ones, but other than that I really don’t see the appeal. I would genuinely like for someone to explain it to me.
This week Facebook rolled-out its Check In Deals feature in New Zealand and it was apparent that McDonald’s New Zealand were well-prepared, as many New Zealanders found McDonald’s polls/advertisements plastered all over the site in the days leading up to the launch, asking what they’d like as their check in reward.
I’m interested to see if/how Burger Fuel utilise the feature. They’ve run a couple of check-in deals on Foursquare (e.g. two-for-one burgers, free L&P) that have been pretty successful, despite Foursquare not being particularly popular among New Zealanders.
Poor Foursquare didn’t really take-off here in the year or so they had before Facebook Places hit New Zealand’s smartphones in Feburary of this year, and they’d have to pull out some incredible feature that Facebook can never replicate in order to do so now. And I mean INCREDIBLE, because I’d say the vast majority of Facebookers (Is that a word?) in New Zealand haven’t even heard of Foursquare, let alone have the means and/or desire to use it.
